New York Times Song Lyrics and Chords by Gene Watson

 

New York Times
Recorded by Gene Watson
Written by O.B. McClinton and Sara Young
C 
My woman always talked about the  
F 
New York City life
G7 
She never really wanted to be a country boy's  
C 
wife
 
Opening nights on Broadway were  
F 
always on her mind
G7 
She couldn't seem to live without what she called the New York  
C 
Times
 
I walked in from work one day and  
F 
didn't find her home
 
But  
G7 
I didn't have to wonder long figured where she'd  
C 
gone
 
Love was all I had to give so  
F 
she left me behind
 
To  
G7 
go up there somewhere lookin' for the New York T
C 
imes
 
Hey  
F 
New York City won't you have a little pity
 
On this  
C 
poor Texas country boy
G7 
Somewhere around your big apple town I've lost my pride and  
C 
joy
 
I've  
F 
walked up and down every street around
 
Till I  
C 
think I'm goin' out of my mind
 
If  
G7 
I don't find my baby today I'll run an ad in the New York  
C 
Times
 
I've been down 5th Avenue even  
F 
up old Broadway
 
And  
G7 
I searched all the honky tonks like the Lone Star  
C 
Cafe
 
Lord I wish I could give her up and  
F 
erase her from my heart
 
But  
G7 
here I stand a broken man in the middle of Central  
C 
Park
repeat #2
 
Well if  
G7 
I don't find my baby today I'll run an ad in the New York  
C 
Times
